57107: Acronis Backup Cloud / Acronis Backup Service: Remote Installation of Agents

Translate to:

You can remotely install Backup Agents.

Create .mst and .msi installation files

  1. Download the full installation file: click on Add in Backup Console and pick Offline Installer.
  2. Click Create .mst and .msi files for unattended installation.
  3. Specify the credentials of the backup account. This account will be used to register machines with installed agents.
  4. Review or modify the installation settings that will be added to the .mst file.
  5. Click Generate.

As a result, the .mst transform is generated and the .msi and .cab installation packages are extracted to the folder you created.

Install agents

  1. Place the files created in the steps above to a shared folder and grant access to the user performing the installation (or to Everyone).
  2. Install agents by using this command:
    msiexec /i <path_to_the_msi> /qb /l*v install.log TRANSFORMS=<path_to_the_msi.mst>

If you need to reboot the machine after installation, you can use this command:
shutdown /r /t 1

More information

If you cannot create .mst and .msi files using the installer interface, extract all files from it with a file archiver (like 7-zip or WinRar); then open the Command Prompt (Start -> Search -> cmd), browse to the folder with the extracted files, and issue this command:

msiexec /i BackupClient64.msi /qb /l*v install.log ADDLOCAL=MmsMspComponents,BackupAndRecoveryAgent,TrayMonitor
REBOOT=ReallySuppress ENABLE_COMMON_ERRORS=1 MMS_SERVICE_USERNAME=<username> MMS_SERVICE_PASSWORD= <password> MMS_MUST_BE_REGISTERED=0 CREATE_NEW_ACCOUNT=0 ACEP_AGREEMENT=1
where <username> is the name of the user who shold run Managed Machine Service, and <password> is this user's password.
